Summary: I got this as a b-day present to myself to play on my new 3DS. While that goes without saying, this is a fun game. But IT IS FRUSTRATING! I had to go to youtube to figure out what to do as the directions are very vague. The graphics ARE amazing and playing it in 3D is nothing to sneeze at, though I recommend taking breaks as you might get a headache. I like the haunted house feel of the game, but I wish there was a save button!
Luigi is back, with another entertaining trip into spooky mansions!

Summary: " 12 years after his first ghost-busting adventure, Luigi finally returns for some more action!" 2013. Year of Luigi. What better game to start off with this year than the long awaited return of Luigi's Mansion; with Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, not only are we treated with a sequel of this long missed game, but we are treated with one fantastic sequel.
Summary: I won't get too involved in the review since it will probably be buried in the middle of the 350+ already posted. I mainly wanted to point out a few pros and cons about this game. It might seem I'm nitpicking, but I must state that it is a very enjoyable game, and a worthy addition to the 3DS library. My negative points? Well, for starters, the game has a level type system. What this means is that you only access each part of the mansion in each 'level'.
Summary: I Ain't Afraid of No Ghosts! Luigi's Mansion was one of the launch titles for the Nintendo GameCube alllll the way back in 2001. Time hasn't done it any favors, but back then it was one of the most unique games ever devised. It featured Luigi in his first starring role in a Nintendo game (nobody counts, remembers or cares about 1992's appallingly horrendous Mario Is Missing! ). I've played through Luigi's Mansion several times, and I often get an urge to play it again.
Summary: I was never a huge fan of Luigi's Mansion, but I did like playing it when I was younger. The ghosts would pop out and the boss fights were even creepy, and the mansion was just awesome, not to mention using a vacuum to suck up ghosts with some crazy scientist nut giving you tips now and then. I also think using the Gameboy Horror on a mirror is still the scariest thing I've ever seen.
Summary: 7/10: A sub-par game that fails to live up to it's predecessor. It's got a great atmosphere and overall art direction, but lacks the solid gameplay mechanics to make it a truly memorable title with lots of replayability. Luigi's Mansion on the Gamecube was the first game I ever played on the console upon receiving it for christmas the year it came out. It was not what I expected at all, and not what I would have really enjoyed.
Summary: I love Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon. Was looking between this or Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Gates to Infinity but decided to get this one instead. I'm glad I did. The game is so casual yet crazy fun. I'm happy when Luigi takes the spotlight instead Mario (most of the time).
Summary: I like this game a lot. The graphics are great for what they're supposed to look like, the sound is very crisp and clear, and the game play is very grabbing. Now as fun as this game is, the lasting appeal is the one thing that keeps this game one star away from 5, and makes it a 4. It's good, but it's not one of those games that when you wake up or come home from work or school you jump right to playing it.
